Its fun, challenging, and decently-sized, looks and sounds great and is just an all-around great game. Now that it's finally available to everybody, do yourself a favour and check out what Game Freak made before Pokémon - you won't regret it!
An uncomplicated, straightforward Genesis platforming design with a unique electric theme -- charging Pulseman and launching him around the screen as pure energy is a blast.
Pulseman bringt eine unspektakuläre, aber gut funktionierende Spielmechanik mit, die Actionfans Freude machen wird. Sucht man hingegen nur absolute Ausnahmetitel, die man als europäischer Spieler zuvor nicht kannte, wird der Funken wahrscheinlich nicht vollkommen überspringen, dafür ist Pulseman letztlich zu durchschnittlich. Vor allem das Setting vieler Levels ist gewöhnungsbedürftig und vom Sucht- sowie Kultfaktor spielt z.B. ein Mega Man eine knappe Liga höher.

Connoisseurs of the genre won't find much that's new here, but that doesn't mean Pulseman is without merit. Yet another one of those games that would be more appealing at a less outrageous price point, but anyone who decides to splash their cash is unlikely to be too disappointed.
Original mais parfois bancal, Pulseman affirme des choix artistiques toujours intéressants. Pour peu que l'univers électronique ne vous rebute pas complètement, voilà un jeu au gameplay très efficace et doté d'une personnalité assumée. Deux ans avant la folie Pokémon le studio Game Freak nous livre cette bonne surprise, désormais disponible sur console virtuelle Wii pour 900 points. Alors, si notre test vous a convaincu, pourquoi pas ?
